Are you interested in having fun, making friends, going on trips, participating in outreach/missions and meeting Jesus? If you are, then Warehouse Student Ministry is for you! We have a great group of students in grades six through twelve who have a passion for Jesus, knowing His Word, wanting to be more like him, and sharing Jesus with those around them. We also like to have FUN! We have an amazing Youth Leadership Team of young adults and adults who want to walk life with you, encourage you and mentor you along the way.
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT
Abbotsford Vineyard Student Ministry exists to equip, empower, and encourage youth grades six through twelve to live an abundant life in the pursuit of Jesus (John 10:10).
Our vision is to draw students to Christ from all walks of life. We want to practically love young people and share Jesus with them so they encounter the life and person of Jesus in every area of their lives. We want to help students learn to love God and equip them for a life of service to him. As a result, we are committed to walking with students through all seasons of life, whether good or bad, and we will not abandon them when things get messy or tough. Furthermore, we seek to let our own lives point them to Jesus.
We are a group of students who have decided to follow Jesus. We not only want to follow him, but we also want to live out our faith in a continually active and growing relationship with him that overflows to our peers and our neighbourhoods. We choose to engage in community and pursue Jesus together. We also have a lot of fun. We set aside time to pray, encounter God in worship, build relationships, and study the Bible but we also reserve space for playing games, taking trips, relaxing, and goofing off. We want to live intentional passion-filled lives and that passion fuels our prayer, worship, and play.
Our Student Ministry meets weekly on Wednesday nights at 7 pm throughout the school year. A typical night consists of worship, praying, Bible reading, building relationships as well as playing games, hanging out, and having fun together. Our goal for each week is simply that we would encounter Jesus – individually and as a community. We often serve with the Abbotsford Food Bank and AVC’s Free!Style ministry. We have an annual missions trip to Mexico each summer and attend a retreat in the fall. We also take trips to The Corn Maze, Laser Tag, go bowling and more.
